Hi there! My name is Arielle Calderon (@ariellesays), and I’m a travel writer who loves to share all the colorful plates and places of the world. I’ve been to several countries and continents, but the city that holds a special place in my heart is the one and only New Orleans. I visited recently during Mardi Gras and had to share all the things NOLA has to offer that the rest of the world desperately needs!
- Streets bustling with jazz music and an energy that will flood your soul with joy.
- Po-boys that are so good, you’ll want to order two.
- World-famous Mardi Gras parades that outshine ALL other parades — like this fandom-based Chewbacchus parade!
- The original Muffuletta from Central Grocery, with sandwiches that are bigger than your face.
